Jake Morris contributed to a recent 4-15 to 2-18 minor win over Limerick and Tipperary will be hoping to get off to a winning start in the under-17 championship away to Cork on Tuesday evening.
On Tuesday, April 18th Tipperary will play Cork in a Munster Under-17 Hurling Championship semi-final at Páirc Uí Rinn (7pm). The prize on offer is a place in the Munster final against Waterford on April 25th. And, this bunch of Tipperary players need your support against a highly-talented Rebel outfit.
In the quarter-finals Cork ran riot when beating Limerick 0-16 to 0-6 at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick. And, this game is of huge significance to these players since no minor inter-county championship will take place in 2018.
